The dragon that lies in the Geum River, the movement of water, the great mountain.
The idea of the Museum Complex. It's like the rounded volumes protect and preserve the living knowledge. Enter the museums is like watching a bird, an unfolding of knowledge. The design of the ground resonates with the stories of tradition, it humps, puffs up, waves and shapes with a sinuous rhythm, on it emerging, rounded and soft volumes lay. In the general masterplan, the museum's volumes are positioned in the south area of the intervention site, large, unified space overlooking the Geum River. In the two areas to the north, it is located the functional area of comfort and amenities.
The resulted combination appears integrated into the overall design of the city, the Museum complex fits with balance, in the planned cultural network in progress. On the south side, it is located in the 75,000 area for the first phase of the intervention, the central operation center, the national children museum, the central storehouse, the parking. The-construction of the museum volumes of the second phase (31,000 square meters), the natural history museum and other medium-scale and small museums, is planned to be placed in a position adjacent to that of the first phase. In this way, all the museums converge and make up an organic system, unitary, a "museum city" in the city. The area for comfort and facilities, whose construction and planned in the second phase, occupy the two areas of 32,000 square meters and 52,000 square meters to the north of the site. Such a position on the west access road 1, introduces the "city of museums", the extension of the north access road gets the boulevard access and becomes the hinge between the city and the museum area itself.
All the functions that make up the area of comfort and amenities, the conference center, concert hall, library, hotels, restaurants, open theater, it is continuous with respect to the whole urban atrium and urban symbol square, it is also connected to the city promotion hall, to the high school of Arts, and the art center through the west road access 2, too.
